Help us make a difference in patient safety and support efficient and effective cleaning and disinfection

The Healthcare Surfaces Institute (HSI) is conducting a crucial research study in collaboration with Caroline Etland, former President of HSI and a faculty member at the University of San Diego. We aim to collect valuable data on the challenges healthcare professionals face when trying to adhere to manufacturer instructions for use (IFUs).

Regulatory agencies have announced their intention to enforce IFU requirements starting in July 2024, emphasizing the importance of following manufacturer instructions. However, we understand that this can be difficult, if not impossible, for healthcare professionals to achieve consistently.

Your valuable input in this brief 5-minute survey will provide essential data and insights.

This data will be instrumental in supporting necessary changes in the way manufacturer instructions for use (IFUs) are written and enforced. Your participation will contribute to our advocacy for critical changes that enhance clarity and effectiveness in healthcare practices.
